{July 31, 2010}   Who Will Die of Breast Cancer in Minnesota?

According to the American Cancer Society’s chart on BC Incident and Mortality Rates by Race and State (2002-2006), Minnesota will have 126.4 (White/Caucasian)  as their incident rate. (All rates are per 100,00 and age adjusted to the 2000 US standard population.) The mortality rate for Minnesota is 22.3 for White/Caucasian.

The African American incident rate is 121.1 but the African American mortality rate is 36.8 for Minnesota. As you can see African American women have a lot higher mortality rate and yet the money raised doesn’t seem to head their way.

It seems to be heading toward white Causian women.
